Jiangsu Suning hold the fourth place in a very strong Chinese Super League and they will be a tough nut to crack for Southampton at this stage.
The season in the Premier League will not kick off before mid-August, meaning it’s hard to expect the Saints at their best here.

Jiangsu Suning v Southampton: Team News
Southampton will face a tough test on Wednesday afternoon when they are to tackle one of the strongest sides in the Chinese Super League. The Saints could struggle to get the result here given Jiangsu’s players should be in a much stronger form with the kick off to the Chinese Super League Matchday NO 12 set for next Tuesday.
On the other side, English Premier League won’t start before mid-August as Southampton have just recently began their preparation period. The former Stoke City manager Mark Hughes managed to save the team in the elite class after tacking charge in March. The Saints finished just above the line thanks to the crucial victory over Swansea City away at Liberty Stadium in the penultimate round.
Jiangsu hold the fourth place after 11 rounds in the top flight of the Chinese football. They are led by the Romanian manager Cosmin Olaroiu who has a host of world class players in his ranks. The former Shakhtar Donetsk star Alex Teixeira is the main star and team’s top scorer with 6 goals in 11 appearances this season. The Brazilian makes a deadly attacking duo together with Richmond Boakye who added 2 goals in 8 appearances this season.

The two teams did not have the chance to take on each other in the past.
Jiangsu Suning v Southampton: Prediction
Jiangsu notched as many as four goals last Sunday when they demolished Italian Serie D outfit Pergolettese in a friendly. Such win will serve as a massive confidence booster after the team suffered a tough 0-4 loss to local rivals Guangzhou Evergrande in another friendly.
The quality is on Southampton’s side, but I can’t go with the away victory here knowing the hosts are in a much better competitive form. I’ll go for the upset here and back the Chinese outfit to pick up the victory at the sky-high 2/1 (3.00) odds. You can also try with a draw at the half time at 6/5 (2.20).
